If you enjoy writing that is clear, yet has it's own sort of logic, you really ought to get this. Thoughtworm is mostly comprised of Sean's journal entries. The entries are usually fairly short, but they're often not particularly to the point. That's not to say the writing is obtuse or difficult. The sentences are straight-forward and well formed and they draw you in. But this is where things get odd, because by the end of many of these entries you're not really sure what you've been told.

But there's none of that here. Instead you get short, strong stories with a depth that betrays the small space they occupy.
